Empties - Products I Have Used Up # 1

This is a post that seems to have been such a long time coming as it takes me an age to ever use up products. I finally thought I'd used up an acceptable amount of products for a post so here we are!

Christmassy Lush Haul

Nothing says Christmas like a Lush haul. This is my first year being a lush addict so actually the first time I've come across the Christmas range so I went a little mad, so much so that the lady on the till got jealous when I told her it was all for me. Here is what I picked up...

A Life Changing Eyeliner

Finding the perfect kohl eyeliner as always been a tough one for me. I only really put kohl eyeliner in my waterline and have tried many over the years that will be gone within the hour, definitely not ideal.

Before I went on holiday this year I knew I had to pick up a waterproof mascara and eyeliner because there was no way I was going to go bare faced at the pool or beach, people would have definitely thought I was ill. I found there was very little choice in the way of waterproof eyeliner so picked up the Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Liner in black. 

MAC Autumn Purchases

With the change in season it only seemed right to pick up some new products from MAC to reflect that, like we really need an excuse to buy MAC products! These were all purchased on separate occasions but all fit together so well.

October Favourites

My October favourites are all very 'late on the bandwagon' items but I'm very glad I finally bought them. So here's what I've been loving in October.

Nails of the Day - OPI Coca Cola Range

After my last nails of the day I was intrigued to find just how many nail polishes I own so I had a count up. 177, I own 177 nail polishes, even I'm shocked at that number!

Product Range Focus - The Body Shop Tea Tree

Spots are the bane of my life! I've always longed to be one of those people that are blessed with effortlessly clear skin but this has never been the case. The last couple of years my skin has been pretty good, I've been happy, just getting the odd spot here and there. That was until a couple of months ago when my skin started going mad, it's safe to say it's the worst it's been since I was at school. I'd start to think it was actually clearing then the spots would come back with a vengeance and I realised I needed to take some serious action and that is where The Body Shop's Tea Tree range comes in.

I Turned 23 - Birthday Present and Shopping Haul

On Monday 12th October, I turned 23. I received some lovely presents and spent the day shopping with one of my best friends, what more could you want? I thought I'd take the opportunity to show you what I received and what I picked up whilst shopping.

The Starlight Blogger Award

Wow, my first ever tag post! I would never imagined someone would nominate to do one of these so early on in my blogging, so thanks you much to Becky from A Little Rosy for nominating me! Go over and check her post out here.

Nails of the Day - Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine

Drugstore Haul

I work a normal 9 to 5 job except for a Friday when we have an early finish of 3:30pm, this is perfect for making the 5 minute trip into town and having a mooch around the shops. Last Friday I decided I wanted to have a good browse in Superdrug and this is what I came away with.

Everyday Face

Hi guys, sorry I haven't posted in a while, I got lazy, oopsie! This post is all my 'autopilot products', the products I use on a standard day when I don't have the time to think about what I'm going to use. This is the look I use on a work day unless I manage to drag myself out of bed early enough to have time for something more exciting.

Tanya Burr Cosmetics - New Products and Swatches

When Tanya Burr announced that she was adding more products to her make up line, I was very excited. I'll be honest, I haven't bought anything from her range before but knew I had to when I saw that eye shadow palettes were involved, I mean, hello, who wouldn't?! The fact that these products were launched on a Thursday was perfect for me. I work a standard 9-5 job, except for Friday when I have an early finish of 3:30pm so this was ideal for popping into my local Superdrug to see what goodies I could get my hands on.

Current Favourites

Hey guys, I thought I would use my first proper post to let you all know what I'm currently loving.

The Difficult First Post


My name is Sophie, welcome to my blog!

In the past year, my love for all things make up and beauty has grown and with this my bank balance has shrunk. I'm a sucker for anything with the word NEW above it and Boots and Debenhams are fast becoming my favourite shops.

This has been a long time coming and something I've thought about for a while. Mostly, I will use this as a platform for voicing my opinion on all things beauty related and for me to find out from other people what products they like and can recommend for me to try.

I'm looking forward to starting this journey and hope you will join me on it. I look forward to hearing from you and getting to know those of you with similar interests.
